Anti-circumvention

On April 30th, 2015, the European. Commission decided to initiate an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of citric acid (including trisodium citrate dihydrate) from Malaysia (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/706). This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed by Council Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/82 dated January 21st, 2015 on imports of citric acid from China might be circumvented (see related intervention).The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS codes: 2918.1400 and ex 2918.1500. Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/706 also makes imports of citric acid from Malaysia subject to registration. Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2015/706 was published in the Official Journal of the European Union (L 113) on May 1st, 2015.

On 15 January 2016, the European. Commission extended the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of citric acid (including trisodium citrate dihydrate) from Malaysia (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 2016/32) originating in Malaysia. The rate of the duty is 42.7% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price.

On 16 April 2021, the European Commission extended the definitive duty imposed on imports of citric from China following the conclusion of a sunset review, see related intervention. The conclusions of this sunset review are additionally covering imports of the same products from Malaysia. The rate of duty ranges from 15.3% to 42.7% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty, depending on the company.
